Recovered Podcast

In our program, it’s our responsibility to make plans. Making plans help us to achieve goals. Goals to improve our well being. Goals to help us be happy, joyous, and free. We are told, it is okay to plan, just that we should be careful not to plan the outcomes. We can make a plan, we should just be careful that our plan doesn't turn into an expectation. An expectation that is unreasonably high can turn into a premeditated resentment. And resentments are dangerous for us alcoholics. Tonight, we talk about Making Recovery Goals. Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self...

Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051 show art Alienation and Loneliness - Recovered 1051

Recovered Podcast

Feelings of alienation and loneliness are difficult, but they are also normal. They are a part of the human experience shared by all, whether recovering or not. Many deep thinking philosophers have attempted to make meaning of it these emotions. We all try to find ways to bear what sometimes feels unbearable. Spiritual traditions also describe these negative emotions. Some have talked about these feelings as a sense of disconnection from the divine. The fact that so many philosophers and spiritual figures have grappled with alienation and loneliness is an indication of how pervasive these...

Recovered Podcast

How often have you sworn off your drug of choice only to pick it up moments or hours later with a new found explanation for doing so? How often have you convinced yourself that your actions were right, even justified, when you knew deep inside that they weren’t? How often have you battled back and forth in your brain between what you should and shouldn’t do until you finally find the excuse that would let you give in? Tonight, we talk about rationalization.

Powerlessness is not meant to disempower. Although you may be powerless in the fact that you struggle with addiction and have no control over it, you are not powerless over the actions you can take because of that knowledge. By accepting the things you cannot change and understanding that it’s possible to change the things that are within your control, you open yourself up to options that can help you heal.

Transitional Housing programs provide structured living settings where newly-sober addicts and alcoholics learn basic skills for drug-free living. Typically, residents hold a job, contribute to maintaining their household, attend 12-step meetings and participate in community life. Transitional Housing can provide a simple way off the streets and into solid recovery. Tonight, we talk about Prayer and Transitional Housing.

More Episodes

As a newcomer, you will generally want to look for a sponsor who has been sober for a good amount of time and who is available to work with someone in early recovery. A sponsor is someone who you will exchange phone numbers with, talk to regularly, and use as your guide to working the steps. It is common for sponsors to ask sponsees in early recovery to call or text them frequently, meet with them regularly, to read 12-step literature, and do step-work.

Tonight, we talk about Sponsorship

Our generous Recovered Podcast Community allows us to be self supporting and not rely on outside contributions.  If you would like to join us, there are three ways.

  1. Episode Sponsorship  We will recognize you by first name only at the top, mid, and end of the episode.  Any amount will qualify.

It might feel strange to ask someone to sponsor you for the first time, but this act is seen by those in 12-step recovery as an honor. Even if someone is not available to sponsor you, they will appreciate that you asked them. Sharing experience, strength, and hope with newcomers is viewed as one of the foundations of staying sober in 12-step recovery, so being a sponsee is just as important and helpful as being a sponsor.
